Almost made it.

Recommended Posts

Had the Inlaws here for the weekend so took the FIL to Cars and Coffee, bright and early. Only to breakdown outside Villanova College barely 100 metres from Turbo Drive. Alternator crapped itself. We got there eventually after getting a new battery which got us home. Alternator is out of the car. Any recommendations for Auto elecs that will know how to rebuild a Marchal with external reg?

It's OK, I've found the man for the job. After some ringing around. Sal in Sunnybank seems to know what he's talking about.

Did you refurbish your alternator?

Yes mate, got it back from the guy yesterday. Have not installed yet. Will do today. He was very very reasonably priced even though i told him it was from a Porsche! Hopefully it is all good to go. looks like he's done a thorough job from first inspection.

Can you please share their contact details?  I have an old one which I recently replaced, its a spare, but thinking I get it refurbished.

I bought a brand new alternator about 6 months ago which I have only done around 2000kms on that I will have available for sale soon for anyone who needs one.

Sal in Sunnybank 0412462149. Ask him for the address. I think it's Aldyn St

Just advise him not to sandblast around the fitted housing too much. Mine's fine but it's probably possible to make them too sloppy with too much blasting.
